Possibly the Smallest Pod Mod System Out There – So Is It Small In Flavour and Performance?
The Sourin iShare Single is a tiny and I mean tiny pod mod that can be sold on its own or come as part of a kit which includes a power bank.
The full kit includes another iShare device and these sit inside the power bank charger which doubles up as a smart carry case.
It’s not just the size of the iShare that’s tiny it has a super small 130mAH internal battery that pumps out just 9 watts.
So based on that you might think the vape will be weak with an extremely low battery life – all will be revealed 😉
Suorin are some might say market leaders in the world of the pod mods with well received devices such as the Suorin Drop and the Suorin Air – both of which despite not reviewing I have used and enjoyed.
OK this was given to me at the recent Vaper Expo by Celia from Suorin for the purpose of this review – thank you – and despite her engaging smile and ready charm my thoughts and opinions are my own.

As I’ve already explained I’m looking at the Suorin iShare Single – which as the name suggests is just one pod mod and a JUUL style USB charger – no lead with this one.
The full kit comes with an extra device and a funky looking power bank which means you can vape on one whilst the other charges.
It’s a tiny device and is powered by an equally tiny 130mAH battery pumping out a lowly 9watts – tiny in every aspect!
It’s a top fill pod that will hold just 0.9ml of e-liquid and there’s no buttons to press or any airflow control – simply charge – fill and puff.
Design and Build Quality
Sourin is known for interesting designs – the Drop and the Air are two that stand out but at Vaper Expo I was also able to use their Vagon pod mod which was a pretty good vape and looked good too.
The design on the iShare is nothing special if I’m honest but it is functional and as light as its tiny – no bigger than the height of a 10ml bottle of e-liquid – and it feels like there’s nothing in your hand!
Build wise the pod comes apart nicely and that stopper seems strong and makes a good seal.
However whilst the pod does connect with a snap – there’s a little give between it and the battery which means I’m forever pushing it down.
Don’t get me wrong the connection is solid – it just seems to rise up a mm or so which annoys my growing OCD streak!
The battery sits nicely in the USB charger and despite my PC having a strange USB ports configuration – it was able to lie flat and upside down and still charge if that makes sense.
How Does the Suorin iShare Perform?
I’ve had this for three weeks picking it up at Expo and it’s been on the go ever since.
I’m a regular MTL vaper and tend to carry two kits with me when out and about – a small light one – like the Innokin EZ Watt – containing tobacco flavour 12mg nicotine and a larger one for sub ohm vaping.
At just 130mAH the Suorin iShare has only been a backup device as it slips into my pocket taking up little if any room.
First up the draw is very tight and certainly tighter than I would normally enjoy but handy for those quick stealthy hits.
The vapour is as you might expect not a lot to write home about with the small amount of power running though it – but these type of devices are designed to deliver your nic hit rather than chuck clouds.
Flavour wise it’s not that bad if I’m honest taking a couple of fills to get that organic cotton and coil broken in.
Whilst it’s not going to win any flavour awards it delivers roughly 2/3rds of what I expect from my regular tobacco flavoured e-liquid [Amber Blend Shake & Vape 30mls from Decadent Vapours].
Incidentally I reckon given this wicks like a champ using my 50PG 50VG e-liquid AND a 70/30 I ran through one fill – it will handle nic salts making it appealing for a quick toot or two on the go to top those levels up.
I’ve found that the battery has lasted me about an hour and half used steadily and a full fill has lasted about twice that.
However if this is one you’re interested in I would definitely suggest you invest in the full kit which includes a spare pod system and the highly portable power bank.
Whilst the single version is good for the occasional stealthy yet satisfying vape the battery life as you can see is not an all dayer so please bare that in mind!
- Highly portable
- Easy to fill
- Easy on the juice
- Easy to operate
- Reasonably fast charge time
- Decent flavour
- Decent clouds for the power and wattage
- Pod lasts well – 3 weeks in and still good
- Battery longevity tiny as you might expect
- Not possible to vape whilst charging
- Only one pod in kit
- iShare Single pricey for what you get – buy the kit!
Final Review Verdict
I was given this by ‘Celia’ the only person it seemed manning the large Suorin booth at Vaper Expo.
My eye had been drawn to the funky looking Vargon pod mod but she was keen to get the iShare ‘out there’ so to speak and offered me the Single for review.
It’s a pity I didn’t buy the full kit including the power bank – but hey I was extremely grateful for the review sample and it was late on my last day there and the old grey matter was fried!
OK so what do I think about it?
I actually quite like the size of the Suorin iShare – as you can see from the photos this thing really is tiny – should that be nano – in size – power and wattage.
However I’m pleasantly surprised at both how well this vapes [once that coil ‘n cotton is broken in] and how handy it is to pop in your pocket or bag.
It’s that small you can forget it’s there but when you need a quick stealthy toot it delivers!
I would consider buying a single Single if you see what I mean but more lean towards the full kit – with an extra iShare and power bank – which as you can see from the photo of Celia is roughly about the size of a vape mod.
So if you’re looking for something extremely stealthy and portable that will top those nic levels up on the fly with a decent flavour profile this would be an ideal choice IMHO!
